We recently made a visit and got pampered at Golden Soul Salon for some much-needed self-care. We believe hair is an important part of your identity, your appearance, and can be extremely luxurious. So in case you’re in the market for something completely new, a quick trim or touch-up, UNATION Austin is here to guide you into the hands of amazing professionals that know exactly what they’re doing.
@goldensoulsalon DID OUR HAIR!! 💗 #stufftodoinaustin #atx #austin #austintexas #austintxtiktok #texas #austintx #OREOBdayStack #austintiktok♬ Fantasy (feat. O.D.B.) (Bad Boy Fantasy) - Mariah Carey
First things first, we think the space is so cute and in a really great location. It’s on South 1st street, near Barton Springs Road with amazing spots within walking distance. It’s a very bright and open space with greenery throughout! The ambiance and vibes are very chic with a modern boho style twist. We loved their antique mirrors, gold accents throughout the salon, and their awesome organizational style. Plus, the wash station makes you feel relaxed with their spa-like moody lighting, candles, and calming music.
Kristen got her hair trimmed about an inch off with long layers, and got face-framing pieces with shorter curtain bangs. For color, she ended up doing highlights and brightening up her existing highlights towards the bottom of her hair. The whole process took about 4 hours and was done by @baileemariehair.
“I got a deep conditioner mask to help give my hair a refresh! It looked super shiny and healthy. I loved that they offered a Sea Salt Scalp Scrub, which helps remove any build-up and promotes hair growth. I mentioned to them that I am very picky with hair products and prefer fewer chemicals. They immediately showcased a few, I reviewed the ingredients, and was able to use something that was better for my hair!”
Mallorie got a balayage done and was really impressed with how healthy her hair felt afterward. Her hair is still shiny, glossy, and feeling fresh even after a month!
“I loved the wide variety of services they have available. They did a deep conditioning mask and my hair felt extremely healthy, despite just having a balayage done! I have to say the wash station was my favorite. The serene room nearly put me to sleep. It was relaxing especially because the deep conditioning mask also has a scalp massage involved.”
